Moto G a profit pariah as Google sacrifices margins

Moto G a profit pariah as Google sacrifices margins

Google may make a profit on every Moto G it sells, but it's likely swallowing a considerably smaller margin on the budget Motorola than rivals would stomach, according to a new teardown analysis. The 16GB Moto G, which Motorola sells unlocked and SIM-free for $199, costs Google $123 in components alone, research firm TechInsights tells the WSJ, with a total likely operating profit margin perhaps a quarter of what other manufacturers would expect from a similarly-positioned Android phone.

Moto X then wearables: here’s how Motorola gets fashionable

In addition to announcing the Moto X's official unveil date, this week the folks at Motorola Mobility have had a bit of a spill.

Google event set for July 24th, Android update incoming

Today an invitation to a special Google event has been sent to the press promising a breakfast with Android head Sundar Pichai. Though this Googler is in charge of Chrome as a web browser and as an operating system as well, it's far more likely that this July 24th event will center on Android itself, especially considering the several appearances of Android's next-generation features in teasers for the Motorola-made smartphone Moto X.

There's very little we haven't heard - or cannot guess - about the machine that's just this week appeared in the hand of Google's own Eric Schmidt. While we'll be going over the suspected specifications of this device here in this article soon, right now the most important bit of information for you is this: Google will be backing this machine from start to finish.

Rainbow Motorola Mobility logo update makes it “a Google company”

Rainbow Motorola Mobility logo update makes it “a Google company”

If the leaks of the MOTO X from earlier today weren't enough to pump you up about the future of Motorola, the new logo might. Released today by Motorola itself, the company has made their lettering a bit more laid-back with the only capital character being the G for their parent company. This logo is joined by a ring of colors around the big M, this signifying (we must guess), the colors you'll be able to get the multi-form "X Phone" in later this year.

Verizon DROID coming soon: Motorola, Samsung, HTC, or LG?

Verizon DROID coming soon: Motorola, Samsung, HTC, or LG?

If it wasn't going to happen with the HTC One, it certainly had to hit Motorola. That's what's happening this week as the infamous @DroidLanding twitter account fires back up for the first time since November of 2011. As the time spread between releases for DROID-branded devices grows long, so does the time before the next grow short: will it be Motorola, HTC, Samsung, or a brand Verizon hasn't graced with its DROID brand yet?

DoJ approves Arris’s $2.35B proposed acquisition of Motorola Home

Arris has just received the go-ahead from the U.S. Department of Justice to acquire Motorola Home from Google. Arris issued a $2.35 billion proposal to purchase the Motorola Home broadband unit from Google, however, before Arris agreed to this deal, it required that Google limit its liability when it comes to the TiVo v.
